How to get involved
Please note that funding for 2021-2022 has been fully allocated in our existing outreach programs (excluding the CHHP).
Please refer to the 'Current Vacancies/Open Expressions of Interest' section below for opportunities that may arise throughout the year.
Expressions of Interest (EOI)
Expressions of Interest (EOI) for outreach health services within Tasmania can be submitted at any time. Liaising closely with health professionals and members of the local community, you will need to identify the need for specific health activities or programs through close stakeholder consultation and community needs assessment.
EOI funding and applications
- All EOIs received are evaluated in line with the relevant Service Delivery Standards (SDS).
TAZREACH will occasionally create an EOI specifically for the purposes of recruiting a new service provider to an existing service.
Please consider the following when identifying a need for an outreach service:
Complete the EOI and return to TAZREACH.
This provides basic information about the proposed service, including how the service will operate in the targeted region or community and what the need for the service is.
EOIs that can be considered are used to develop a formal service proposal.
TAZREACH will contact the applicant for further details while developing the service proposal.
All TAZREACH Service Proposals need to be considered by the TAZREACH Advisory Forum for endorsement. More information about the Advisory Forum and its role can be found on the TAZREACH Governance Page.
Approval can take up to several weeks once the application has been submitted.
TAZREACH will advise of an approved application and send you a Service Agreement with an Acceptance of Offer.
As part of this agreement, you will need to provide copies of:
- professional registration
- professional indemnity insurance
- police check
- working with children/vulnerable people check (if applicable)
- other supporting documentation.
All service providers must undergo a conviction check as part of the TAZREACH funding process. For services provided to children and/or vulnerable people, a Working with Vulnerable People / Children Check is also required.
Please note: Providers who deliver outreach services from a Tasmanian Health Service (THS) facility location will need to be credentialed by the THS.
The TAZREACH office does not credential health professionals but can assist the provider in connecting with the THS credentialing committee to complete their application online.
TAZREACH will liaise with service providers and service hosts to offer support and assistance where necessary.
Service providers and hosts are encouraged to contact TAZREACH if they have any concerns about their service.
Claim forms and service reports are submitted after each outreach service on the claim form template provided by TAZREACH with each service agreement.
Timely submission of claim forms and completed service reports is a condition of your service agreement.
Payments may not be processed if claim forms are not submitted within the specified timeframes.
TAZREACH conducts an annual review of all services during March and April each financial year.
We collect feedback on the progression of the service and how the service is improving the health outcomes of Tasmanians.
Information gathered through the annual review may be used to inform the planning of services for the next financial year (pending funding availability).
